Orphan Boy Acquires Cottonbelt: Broken Hill Type Sedex
Target

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - March 30, 2005) - Orphan Boy
Resources Inc., the "Company", (TSX VENTURE:ORS) of Vancouver, British
Columbia is pleased to announce the acquisition by cell staking of 1,570
hectares of mineral property adjacent the historical Cottonbelt lead +
zinc occurrence. The property is located approximately 70km northwest of
the City of Revelstoke, British Columbia.

The capsule description of geological characteristics from the BC
Geological Survey Minfile provides the following profile of the
Cottonbelt mineralization: "Previous observations refer to the distinct
similarities between the Cottonbelt and the famous world class Broken
Hill lead, zinc deposit of Australia."

In 1996, surface drilling tested the down dip extension of the
sulphide-oxide layer at a depth of 2,400 feet. Drilling proved that the
distinctive enclosing stratigraphy of the Cottonbelt horizon exists on
both limbs of the Mount Grace Syncline, "MGS", but drilling failed to
intersect the sulphide-oxide layer at the hinge.

The Company is planning geological reconnaissance designed to calculate
the complex hinge geometry with a view toward future drilling. The
sulphide-oxide layer may attain much greater thickness at the hinge of
the MGS than the previously tested upper or lower limb zones. The best
core drilling grades intersected to date (not N.I. 43-101 compliant) at
a width greater than one-meter assayed 10% to 12% combined lead + zinc.

On behalf of Management
